Simple Professional Layout *Update*

step 1
Hello and welcome to the Simple Professional Layout tutorial. First, start off by creating a new document around the size of 800 x 600. Rename your background layer to “bg”. Set your Foreground Color to FFFFFF, and set your Background Color to E5E5E5. Press CTRL + BACKSPACE to fill the background layer “bg” with white. Create a new layer and call it “layout”. Now Grab the Rectangular Marquee Tool and make a selection of about 600 width by 800 height in the center of the image. While on layer “layout”, fill it with white by pressing ALT + BACKSPACE. Product.
step 2
Phew. Okay, now while on layer “layout” click the button that says Add a layer style at the bottom of the Layers Palette and choose Drop Shadow. Use these settings. Product.
step 3
Cool. Okay, now make a selection at the top of your layout that looks like this. Fill it with some color or something, or put a banner here. Product.
step 4
Now it's time to make some sort of nav. It's up to you from here, though. Maybe you want two vertical nav areas; maybe you want a nav going horizontal across the top? Either way, go add it. Product #1 or Product #2.
step 5
Good! We're winding down now.... Just leave some space for a content area, or maybe make a footer at the bottom if you really want. It's really all up to you. I made a demo in Photoshop of what the layout might look like coded out, take a look here: Final Product!

Thanks For Reading..
conclusion
Well, I hope you learned something nifty and new and awesome. Good luck with your layout, soldier. Thanks.
